Bald Girl with Cancer - Giving TuesdayIf you’re looking for a local charity to give to during the holidays, consider the Northern Nevada Children’s Cancer Foundation! We are a nonprofit located in Reno, Nevada, helping northern Nevada children diagnosed with cancer.

November 28, 2017 is #GivingTuesday

Give now

Here are some examples of what your gift could provide:

– Masks for children with compromised immune systems
– Medical bills not covered by insurance
– Travel costs to and from treatment
– Copay for an emergency room visit
– Care package for a newly diagnosed family

After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it’s Giving Tuesday. Many people consider it the kick-off to holiday and end-of-year giving. This inaugural event started in 2012 and grew into a movement that celebrates giving and philanthropy. Many local nonprofits will be participating this year, and we encourage you to be a part of the movement and promote the spirit of generosity.

Your donation will go a long way in providing emotional and financial support for a family with a child diagnosed with cancer. NNCCF assists families with costs like medical expenses, insurance deductibles, uncovered procedures, travel costs and additional expenses the family might need assistance with during a child’s treatment.

Our goals are to alleviate the financial burden and emotional strain that comes with a child cancer diagnosis, and to expand public awareness of childhood cancer. We promote research to find a cure for cancer, so our children can grow up healthy and cancer free. Our foundation further assists families throughout their child’s treatment by connecting them with other local, regional and national resources.

Join us in making a difference in the lives of these children. We have many different giving options and have convenient online donation options. Let’s help them achieve their dreams and grow up cancer free.
